We have just bought a new place and from the looks of it, the bathroom tile walls have not been cleaned in ages. The grout in between the tiles is dark yellow. Is there anyway to clean it ?
We have tried to use bleach, a tilelab grout/tile cleaner, vin and baking soda combination. None of this seems to work at all and it still looks yellow. Home Depot suggested that we use a polyblend grout renew product to make it look like new again. But of course we would rather take the grout off without re-grouting.
Its also possible that the grout used had a colour pigment added,would also explain why it wont come off.
Sorry Ben, but I think if nothing can clean the grout you will have to re-grout your bathroom. I would also recommend that you try Home Depot's polyblend grout renewal product.
Hi, we see this all the time. Yes you can regrout, we have done many of these jobs which are a lot of work but worth it in the end. Another option is Grout paint. We are able to get the professional blend from our suppliers. It comes in just about any color you want and is long lasting and you can do it yourself!!
I just thought I should tell you that I believe you have water damage behind the walls. You might need to have a contractor check it out for you. If there is color changes there can be a variety of things that can cause these problems.
I used a portable Shark steam cleaner. It worked amazangly. I would use the small 1 " diam. brush attatchment, steam each grout line then wipe off the dirt with a rag.
Hi Everyone. I have great news! This is exactly what we do!
